cKenneys installed data center


power monitoring controls at the
bureau office of a 24/7 cable
news network in Washington, D.C.
THE CHALLENGE
To keep the high-profile cable news bureau
up and running, McKenneys needed to add
maximum power redundancy within the owners existing building automation system (BAS)
infrastructure. New power monitoring controls

had to be installed in this live data center with


finite power availability. Not a single circuit
breaker could be turned off or accidentally
tripped during the project, requiring careful,
remote coordination with other contractors.
THE SOLUTION
The McKenneys team maintained frequent,
direct communication with the onsite electrical
contractor to obtain scheduling information and
confirm the validity of measured values once

end-user devices were integrated. As a result,


the power meters were seamlessly integrated
into the BAS system without any power loss.
THE RESULTS
The owner can now view data on power
consumption, normal conditions and alerts
to abnormal conditions and react accordingly.
Electrical loads also help validate temperature
fluctuations via HVAC sensors distributed
throughout the data center.
